Holiday Information

A lovely cycling holiday in Italy, alternating between gentle coastal roads, vast plains, steep climbs and thrilling descents. This is a challenging ride deep into the heart of Sardinia, requiring a reasonable level of fitness. With detailed route notes, maps, luggage transfers and your accommodation booked, you can set off at your own pace to explore this outstanding Mediterranean island.
Starting in the South West near Montevecchio, at the Agriturismo famous amongst 'skedaddle aficionados' for its friendly hosts and delicious meals, we set off through hills carpeted with lush green Maquis vegetation, past remote mining villages, towards the towering sand dunes of the Costa Verde, where the adventure officially begins.
Over the next five days our route takes you past olive groves and vineyards, unique archaeological sites, through lush green oak woods and up into exhilarating mountain landscapes.
Highlights include a challenging climb through the stunning Gennargentu mountain range and the grand finale of your cycling adventure - cycling through the limestone Supramonte Mountains of Dorgali to descend to the stunning Orosei Gulf, where a swim in the emerald green sea is your just reward!
If you prefer to take things off road there is also a self guided mountain bike option and a fully guided mountain bike option too. If you have a day or two to spare why not extend your trip with some trekking or sea kayaking. Our local team can join you for a day’s guiding or we can provide the information and equipment to allow you to enjoy the routes self-guided, just give us a call for further info.
